Glazed 1.15 is a resource pack for Minecraft 1.15 for all of your Minecraft vanilla lovers out there. Some use the term ‘semi-vanilla’ but this pack is even closer than that. Perhaps ‘almost-vanilla’ would be more appropriate? Anyways, this is a pack for players who swear by vanilla Minecraft and want to stay faithful to the game’s default textures as closely as possible. But is there enough change to justify a whole new resource pack? Find that out and much more in my review and rundown of Glazed 1.15.
What is Glazed 1.15?
Glazed 1.15 is a vanilla resource pack based off InFinite pack by FinsGraphics with a large amount of updates and improvements up to Minecraft 1.15. Full of hundreds of tiny and subtle changes, this pack is bursting with content, but not the content of the ostentatious kind. Glazed 1.15 focuses on making improvements to the base game, but while maintaining Minecraft’s original look to such a degree that I’ve never seen before in a faithful resource pack.
What is Glazed 1.15 like to play with?
Glazed 1.15 is a funny thing to review. The pack’s dedication to the base game is frankly impressive, but it presents a problem when trying to make comparisons between the two. Ultimately, the pack aims to provide hundreds of small changes and improvements to the vanilla textures, without replacing them completely. The phrase ‘throwing the baby out with the bath water’ comes to mind, and this pack certainly doesn’t throw out the bath water!
This pack is a pretty niche affair. Unless you are a devoted vanilla player and want something that will only make the smallest of adjustments (although there is a high number of changes), then your attention might be better served with a different resource pack. The changes made are positive ones when you notice them, but that seems to be the biggest issue, that most of the changes present in this pack are minor at best and will only satisfy the most eagle-eyed of players. It’s a bit of a double-edged sword, really. Although the strong faithful ethos the pack commits to is commendable, it also gets in the way of introducing new and exciting textures for players to experience.
So that’s it, really! Glazed 1.15 isn’t a pack for everyone, but you can’t fault it on its dedication to vanilla Minecraft and serving a unique purpose. Although not everyone will find something of use in this pack, Glazed 1.15 will make a great addition for players who love vanilla and semi-vanilla packs and are looking to expand their current resource pack library.
